Swedish diving gloves
Posted by: old_user on Sep-03-09 5:14 PM (EST)
Forgot to mention THE very best glove I found for kayaking extended periods in Antarctica is a Swedish diving glove called Nordic Blues. They have a brushed inner surface, a seal-out rubber gasket around the wrist and come with your choice of wool or fleece liner. I get them two sizes too big and add my own SmartWool liner inside their wool liner. They keep me warm for hours! Of course getting them off and on quickly is a challenge. I finally found the glove that works for me, after some 100 outings in Antarctic waters. See http://veslaoutside.blogspot.com/ for more info about Nordic Blues. Scroll down on the left side bar.
Stay warm and toasty out there this winter!

Will do. Thanks! I think the key to a warm hand, all other things considered is a glove that is not too tight nor too big. Too tight constricts and too loose means wasted air space. I will look these up and check them out. Stay warm.
